Switch to mobile data

If the quality of the Wi-Fi network is poor, the Samsung device can automatically disable Wi-Fi and use mobile data by enabling the "Switch to mobile data" option in the advanced settings.

If the Samsung device has automatically switched to mobile data, the network quality is checked at regular intervals. In this case, the WLAN menu will display the message "Ready to connect when network quality improves". If this is the case, the Samsung device will automatically reactivate WLAN and connect to the stored network within range.

Proxy Server

A proxy can be set up on the Samsung device, which redirects the WLAN Internet connection via the set proxy server. To set up a proxy, at least the proxy host name and proxy port are required. Optionally, the user name and password for the connection are also required.

On the Samsung device you can also specify web pages to bypass the proxy, which will then establish a direct connection to the web page.
